In an attempt to bring the light, airy and chicly laidback style of the surrounding suburb indoors, the design team at BKH pared-back both the material and tonal palette of Mosman House II. Throughout the home’s various spaces, echoes of Sydney’s waterfront lifestyle are coupled with softened graphic gestures – the motif of circles, grand sweeps and sharp rectilinear linework – to recall the bold design history of one of Australia’s most famed locales.
From the impressive spiralling staircase elegantly wrapped in pure white, all the way through to decorative chinoiserie screens and modern art, the design scheme evokes elegant understatement at all avenues. As an intelligent response to what surely has to be one of the most competitive property markets in greater Sydney, the timelessness of the home’s design is an inspired bid in making sure that it will remain immune from fickle market trends, while also guaranteeing a level of everyday luxury for its lucky residents.
Selecting Precision Flooring’s engineered European Oak finished in the soft honeyed tones of Alpacca, the generous use of timber throughout playfully balances with the home’s predominant white tonality. Meanwhile, graphic contemporary furniture offsets select antiques and examples of fine art to pull together an undoubtedly individual and characterful abode perfectly referencing the tastes of its owners.
